This was like stepping into the past in a glorious way - the Oxfordshire rolling countryside was beautiful and I was really surprised to see loads of Red Kites just flying all over the countryside and railway area. The journey was glorious, it was nice to be able to go on it as many times as we wanted and the home made cakes from their café were the best. We went over the Jubilee weekend and they'd pulled out all the stops for a lovely event, it was just perfect and we were made to feel really welcome.

Wonderful Birthday Treat! It was fantastic! Everyone was so cheerful kind and informative! All were included and welcomed. Took my elderly mum who does not go out much and she enjoyed it so much. All run by volunteers so please support their excellent work! A brilliant day for all! Thank you for a great day out Keith and everyone! They also do Ploughman's lunches, fish and chips days, Christmas events!
